About me

I have worked with individuals, couples, and families seeking counseling since 2009, through residential facilities, prisons, in-person and online services. I specialize in Addictions, Family reunification and , Mood Disorders.
**PLEASE DO NOT HIRE ME IF MY AVAILABILITY FOR LIVE (PHONE OR VIDEO ONLY) COUNSELING SESSIONS DON'T WORK FOR YOU ON A WEEKLY BASIS***
My practice hours for live sessions are: (all times are listed in Eastern Standard Time)
Monday to Thursday 6:30 - 8:00 am and at 9:00 - 10:00 pm I am open for one evening appointment.
Fridays 8 to 4 by appointments.
Saturdays: Unavailable
Sundays: Unavailable
I work a separate full-time job M-Tr, 9a-6:30p. I respond at least daily through Betterhelp's messaging system.
In a nutshell: I'm a husband to my beautiful wife and the father of two amazing daughters, providing mental health and addiction services is my passion!
By licensure, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in Indiana.
By trade, I'm a therapist who has worked with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, men's issues, addictions, trauma and difficult life changes. I also helped many people who have experienced trauma or emotional abuse find comfort in who they truly are by developing themselves based on values instead of being defined by their circumstances.
My counseling style is relationship-centered, straightforward, validating, and challenging at times. Since 2013, I have been practicing as a Licensed Masters/Clinical Social Worker in Indiana helping to bring Restoration and Hope to individuals and families struggling with various life issues.

I believe in treating my clients with respect, autonomy, and empathy, and I don't believe in teaching through criticism or shame. My approach combines Cognitive and Dialectical Behavior therapy with Motivational Interviewing. I will tailor our conversations and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes guts and vulnerability to trust another human being with your story and present situation. If you choose to work with me, I am honored to partner with you to find true Peace & Joy in this life and to take more steps towards who you really are.

(Please remember that BetterHelp is not appropriate if you are in crisis or in immediate need of support. In crisis situations, please call 911 or local emergency services. You can also call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to talk to someone right away.)
